I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with my tummy. Reality check: It’s mostly hate. I loved it when it carried my two (BIG), healthy, (BIG) baby boys. Did I mention BIG?
I hated it when it didn’t magically bounce back after each delivery (Via c-section. As if the whole big baby thing wasn’t enough to wreak havoc).
Now, five months after my last (BIG) bundle of joy, I’m finally getting used to not hearing things like “Oh my GOD. Your belly is HUGE!” “Are you having twins!?” “That’s just ONE baby in there!?”
But–like most moms within a few months of having a baby–what I fear most is one day hearing “When are you due?”
You see, most people don’t tell you that after you leave the hospital with your brand-new baby…you still look pregnant. And if you’re like me, fortunate enough to be blessed with big, healthy babies (have I mentioned my 5 month old wears 18-24-month clothes?) but cursed by weak stomach muscles from repeat c-sections…you know that the dreaded pouch is along for the long-haul. I Zumba, I walk, I’ve lost 40 lbs…but my tummie has fallen, and it can’t get up.
Or can it?
Enter Yummie Tummie.
My friend Christina (who I’ve known since both of us were in our 20s and our Tummies had not a care in the world besides which bikini it should wear, or what we were feeding it next), told me about Yummie Tummie’s “Say Wow Not Ow Yummie Tummie Style Session” at BlogHer.
Yummie Tummie has tanks, camis, shapewear . . super sexy underthings . . . everything a new mom with two kids could dream of gifting the tummie that sacrificed so much to give her two beautiful babies!
